Style: Earthy & Spicy

Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 13.7%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Tinto Rey means Red King. Tempranillo is the king of Spanish red wines and one of the most important varietals in our Matchbook Vineyard in the Dunnigan Hills. The Spanish varietals Tempranillo and Graciano contribute spicy red berry fruit flavors; Syrah adds rich flavors of black cherry and blueberry; the spicy cedar and tobacco notes are from the cool weather Cabernet Sauvignon; a touch of Petite Sirah pumps up the tannins, the rich color, and adds a little pepper spice.

44% Tempranillo, 36% Syrah, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Graciano, 2% Petite Sirah

Critical Acclaim

"Another big-time winner is the 2007 Tinto Rey, a 6,900 case blend of 44% Tempranillo, 36% Syrah, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Graciano and Petite Sirah. Delicious and seductive, it boasts abundant notes of black currants, black cherries, licorice, forest floor and spice. Round, silky tannins, medium to full body and an excellent finish make for a heck of a proprietary blend the likes of which more California wineries should be producing. I understand the marketing significance of single varietal wines, but it is blends such as this that can be so attractive."

This blend is awesome! From the spicy red berry fruit flavors of black cherry and blueberry with spicy cedar and tobacco followed by just a hint of pepper. Makes this a great wine for sipping and relaxing or pairs well with any food.

This wine is easy to drink. My wife likes it room temp and I like just a little chill on it. To me it becomes smoother and tasty.
